All four Lexelle-sponsored riders head to Snetterton this weekend hoping to add to their championship point’s tallies.

Tyco Suzuki’s Taylor Mackenzie is in buoyant mood following successful tests at both Kirkistown and Snetterton.

The 20-year-old still has his sights set on the British Supersport top six.

He said: “Now that we have the first four rounds out of the way I’ll be setting myself some new goals which involve me pushing ever closer to that British Supersport top six.

“It’s a tough championship this year but I know we have the package for the job in the GSX-R600 and the Snetterton test helped me find a base setting for this weekend.

“Hopefully the weather is kind and we can post our best results of the year.”

Team manager Philip Neill said: “Taylor managed to find some positive track time during the past two weeks, which should set him up nicely for this weekend.

“Snetterton is a track which has been fairly good to us over the years with quite a few podium finishes and if we can continue like that, we will be satisfied – although a debut Superbike win at Snetterton would be even better.”

Taylor’s brother Tarran will be looking to get back to winning ways in the Monster Energy Motostar Championship and John McGuinness will be in action in the 1000cc Superstock

Scottish youngster Callum Bey is aiming for his first win in the 125cc Motostar class but is only 10 points outside the championship top three.
